Grist Mill Company of Lakeville, MN, is voluntarily recalling Fruit & Nut Trail Mix Granola Bars and Muesli Cereals, sold under retailer brand names because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
Almonds received by Grist Mill Company were randomly tested for the presence of Salmonella. This ingredient testing did not reveal a presence of Salmonella in raw almonds before the ingredient was used to manufacture the subject products and there are no reported illnesses associated with these products. However, the company is working with FDA to assure the quality and safety of the food supply.
This recall is in response to a voluntary recall by Paramount Farms of California of whole and diced raw almonds based on over 20 possible illnesses associated with the almonds nationwide.
